Scarlett Johansson is Siri-ously hot in the newly released trailer for Her, even if it's only her voice being used!
Scarlett lends her vocals in the trailer to the character of Samantha, the "world's first artificially intelligent operating system." Although, her relationship with her user Theodore, played by Joaquin Phoenix, is far from artificial, as the two start to voice their love for each other.
Samantha is basically HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey, but instead of being a homicidal computer, she's more of a sultry-voiced, flirtatious Siri — you know, if Siri could understand what you were saying more than 20% of the time.
We're excited to see this interesting commentary on humanity's love for technology, if only too see Joaquin try to RAM his cord into ScarJo's port until his disk is floppy! LOL!

So many mixed emotions!!!
Once Upon A Time's creators have revealed which characters are staying and which will be axed for the third season of Storybrooke’s unfolding saga. There is bad news, but there is also very good news!
Let's start with the bad news.
One of the characters who will not be returning is Meghan Ory, aka Ruby, aka Red Riding Hood! We are MAJORLY bummed about this one, but with all the new characters introduced during this past season, Ruby’s plot fell by the wayside. Sadz.
But she doesn’t count out returning to the cast down the road!! She said the following:

We love late Spring!!!!
Not only are all of our favorite flowers in bloom, but many of our favorite celebz are too!!
Toni Collette, for instance, makes her comeback on CBS's Hostages!!
The Sixth Sense star and American Horror Story's gorgeously wonderful Dylan McDermott star in this delectable dramz about “a family caught in the middle of a grand political conspiracy that will change their lives forever.”
CBS also greenlit Intelligence, a Terminator-esque procedural featuring Lost's Josh Holloway as a cop with a microchip in his brain!
So much perfectly wonderful programming, so little time!!
We can't wait for Fall!

If you ask us, Eva Mendes is plenty smart enough for any movie!
Helloooo, this is the woman who’s bagged Ryan Gosling.
As if there is anyone smarter!
Well, Eva might have been smart enough to land a certain movie role, but she revealed to Jon Stewart at The Daily Show that she didn’t sound smart enough to keep her own voice in the film.
Um, did no one involved hear that luscious voice??
Poor Eva ended up having her voice dubbed over in one of her first films to up the intelligence, but it sounds like it might not have totally worked.
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

Sleep?!?!?! We don't need so stinkin sleep!!!
Researchers have found out that dolphins are swimming machines who can swim for two straight weeks.
Dolphins are not super huge fans of sharks so they are always on the lookout for the giant predators.
Marine biologists have studied the dolphin brain and they believe that these majestic creatures can sleep with "half of their brain."

Well, we could have told you this without a research project!
According to the findings of a study conducted by Gordon Hodson, a psychologist at Brock University in Ontario, adults with lower intelligence are more prone to gravitate toward socially conservative ideologies, which, because they stress a resistance to change, also leads to prejudice!
According to social and cognitive psychologist Brian Nosek:

What haven't we thought of this??
Over 150 stray cats have been drafted into a prestigious special ops unit the Chinese media has dubbed "The Cat Army."
From what we understand they're a lot like Seal Team 6 — only instead of destroy terrorists they're battling rats. LOL.
Yes, the rodent problem has become such a huge issue pasture lands Bole that the government has had to intervene.
The Huffington Post says that the cats were brought in, along with tons of poisonous rat pellets, and May from June that rat holes had decreased by more than half!!
We are totes impressed! 'Merica needs to get onto of this new military intelligence.
